ashleyweller…, Renter in Raleigh, NC

Good neighborhood for 1br1ba up to $650 a month?

Asked by ashleyweller2134, Raleigh, NC Thu May 9, 2013

I am a young single woman moving to Raleigh in the next 4-6 months for a job located in downtown Raleigh. I am moving on my own so I need a 1br apartment and $650 is probably the most I could afford. Needs to be a SAFE neighborhood. What is a safe neighborhood (or apartment complex) that would be best?

First question..do you have your own transportation or are you going to rely on public transportation which here means the bus line? That will definately make a difference. I'm not overly familiar with apartments but there is a nice complex to the west side of Raleigh called Trinity Park which is located next to the PNC Arena. Only reason I know that place is that my son and daughter in law lived there for about 18 months. EZ commute into town and I do think there is bus transportation. Otherwise I would probably focus on apartments to the north side of Raleigh. You can get a full list by Googling apartments/Raleigh.

Be careful of Craigslist right now... lots of scamming going on where you'll spot something affordable, call them and the first thing you are asked before even viewing the rental is to fill out an application over the phone...including your SS# for a credit check!! DON'T DO THAT!!!

I will have my own transportation, but I would really like a short commute as well. I will check out Trinity Park though, thanks!

I would suggest you try the regular rental sites:

http://www.craigslist.com

http://www.trulia.com (Rentals Section)
http://www.zillow.com (Rentals Section)
http://www.realtor.com (Rentals Section)

Between all of those, you will get a very clear picture if you can find what you are looking for. Good luck!
